Federal Programs

Title I-A Improving Basic Programs is a supplemental program which originated with federal legislation in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.  The purpose of Title I is to enable schools to provide opportunities for selected students to acquire the knowledge and basic skills contained in the content standards and to meet the challenging state performance standards developed for all children, particularly in reading.

All students who receive Title I services are selected based on multiple data points at the beginning of the school year.  Services are based on the students with the most need.  Students in Kindergarten through third grade received these intervention services during the 2018-2019 school year.  Fast ForWord, a powerful one-on-one intervention program for third grade students, is also a vital part of the Title I program.  Staff and parents are in consultation concerning students selected for these programs. 

Students work with educators who meet the definition of highly qualified teachers.  These educators provide parents with educational materials during the school year to help students be successful.  This may come through individual and group meetings that are held during the school year, report cards, conferences, and newsletters.  Parents who are unable to attend meetings during the scheduled times are encouraged to request a different meeting time and these will be accommodated.  Additionally, parents may request information in their native language.

On the fall 2018 3rd Grade English Language Assessment, 60% of East Muskingum students were proficient on the full measure assessment.  78% of the 3rd graders were proficient and/or above that level on the 2019 3rd Grade English Language Assessment administered in the spring.  All student performance data is available from Title I staff at each building and will be shared at each building’s annual Title I parent meeting.  Information may also be found at www.ohiopirc.org.  Parent involvement and input is vital to the success of the program.  The district Parent Participation Policy can be located on the district website. 


Title II-A Supporting Effective Instruction funds are used to improve teacher quality through professional development and training, as well as class size reduction.  Title IV-A Student Support and Academic Enrichment supports student learning and safety.
